They`re leaving sherk off until his steroid thing is cleared up, and BJ needs another fight in the LW div before people pop him right up top(he may still go to WW)

Haha, they don't have Nick Diaz up there even though he beat the number one ranked lightweight .


Some I can agree with, others... not so much. I like the top of the heavyweight division, though.

If you read the article, it says that those currently serving a steroid type suspension are NOT elligible right now. Otherwise they probably would have been.

HOW IS SERRA THE BEST WW
gsp is obviously the best still did you see him fight kos are you kidding dominated a division1 wrestler at wrestling, and matt hughes is gonna kill serra showing that it was a crazy once in a lifetime upset. He had to do the ultimate fighter 4 the comeback just to get his shot. St. pierre had to fight the best to get his second shot. compare records and each have fought karo Pariysian gsp beat him and serra lost, what a surprise. matt serra made me laugh during the preview for TUF 6 saying he did not get lucky, OK sure you totally out matched gsp right, I mean because you dominated in the fight you obviously didn't just stand there for the whole match until you got one hit and gsp could not regain his footing. I hate hughes alot but i have never wanted to see him beat anyone more than i want him to beat serra and finally send this joke of a champion where he belongs Serra couldnt even hang with anyone on that list without supreme luck.

Why is GG ahead of Werdum? And AA behind GG? Well at least they ranked Couture more realistically then most.

Chuck Liddell way to high like usual. Wandy crushed Rampage twice. He belongs above Liddell.

Hansen way too low.

According to the way they say they rank, they really fudged these up.

"We take into consideration a fighter's performance in addition to his win-loss record, head-to-head and common opponents, difficulty of opponents, and numerous other factors in what is the most comprehensive rankings system in the sport."

Difficulty of opponents
Yeah, Tim and GG really fought better opponents then Werdum and Aleksander right? Arlovski fought way better comp as well.

Where's Hendo among the MW's? Kos is way too high among the WW's. Faber doesn't get enough credit among the FW's. These rankings are off. I like some, but I think I could do a better job.
